The City National Grove of Anaheim is an indoor, live music venue in Anaheim, California operated by Nederlander Concerts of Los Angeles. Its approximate capacity is 1,700.

Less than two miles (3.2 km) from the Disneyland Resort, the Grove is just to the east of Interstate 5 on Katella Avenue. The Grove sits on the northwest corner of the parking lot of Angel Stadium of Anaheim, home of Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. It is also located near the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center with Amtrak and Metrolink service.

Having opened in 1998, the venue was originally opened as the ill-fated Tinseltown, an awards show-themed restaurant. After converting to a concert venue, it was temporarily renamed The Sun Theatre before changing its name to The Grove of Anaheim. On January 24, 2011, the venue again changed its name to City National Grove of Anaheim, following the agreement of a five-year, $1.25 million naming rights deal with City National Bank.
Among the artists that have performed here are Bob Dylan, B.B. King, Air Supply, Chiquis, Enrique Bunbury, Julio Iglesias,

Joe Satriani, Boz Scaggs, Halford, Merle Haggard, George Lopez, Jamie Foxx, Seal, MattyBRaps, Machine Gun Kelly (musician), Something Corporate, Live, Everclear, and Jaguares.

  • This is a great venue to watch a concert. It is very intimate which makes you feel up close and personal with the artist. Because of it's size, anywhere you sit you will have a good view of the stage. Even so, they have large screens on both sides of the stage. Staff was super helpful and friendly. The day we attended they had both outdoor and indoor bars open, plus hightop tables to enjoy cocktails and appetizers before the show. Overall, a great experience.
  • Almost perfect. Exiting is horrible. And no longer do they show the emergency exit plan before the show begins. Not that the exits are hard to find, but I appreciated the effort by the venue in the pre-pandemic years. There were chairs falling over blocking aisles, and aisles just jammed all the way back to the stage. Just jammed up. Why not open some of the exterior doors as well? Other than the apparent life safety issues, it really is a fantastic venue to hear good music.
